The San Antonio Spurs will be back in action this Saturday in a preseason match against the Miami Heat in Miami. For the Spurs, it will be a good gauge to see where the team stands against the defending champs and for Manu Ginobili, he is looking forward to it. Though isn't putting much stock in the outcome of the game.
"It's always good to play against the best teams in the league," he said. "They came from winning the championship so definitely they're good. It's good to prepare against them."
San Antonio is coming off a preseason win over the Houston Rockets, however, that was this past Sunday. The team will be off for five days until their matchup versus the Heat. So they might be a bit rusty come Saturday, but the rest (and practice) will only do the team wonders. Especially for Ginobili and the rest of the older players.
However, Manu feels a preseason game versus a power team like the Heat is not a huge measuring stick of the team's progress as far as which team wins, but he does feel it's better to play against the best team in the league than the worst.
